Over time sprinkler systems degrade and begin to operate less effectively. On the surface, everything may look as good as it can be. Did you know that these inefficiencies translate into wasted water and higher watering costs? To ensure your sprinkler system is operating at peak performance, the best thing to do is have your system audited. A licensed and trained auditor will walk through your entire irrigation system, inspecting the design, performance and condition of your system. An irrigation audit may not only significantly reduce water waste, but also save you lots of money over time.
- Collect Sprinkler System Information
Information regarding your sprinkler system is collected outlining the manufacture and model of your different sprinkler components. Such as your controller type, backflow preventer model, water line sizes, static pressures and other site specific information regarding your system.
- Evaluate Each Sprinkler Zone
After your system information is collected, a walk through is conducted carefully examining the performance of each zone. We’ll make detailed notes regarding, heads below grade, leaking sprinkler heads, leaking pipes, clogged nozzles, sprinkler heads that should be moved and much more information. From this walk through, recommendations for improvement can be made to get your system in tip-top shape.
- Review Watering Schedule
Our highly trained technicians will then review your current watering schedule and put together a program based on your landscape’s water requirements. We take important factors into consideration such as, sun, shade, slope, soil type and different plant types to ensure you’re watering what is needed.
- Detailed Report
With all our information collected, a detailed report will be provided outlining your sprinkler systems current operating performance and what simple improvements we can do to make it more efficient. You’ll know exactly what state your system is in and how better it could be!
